Meld

I just came home from volunteering with Meld. I love it. It looks as if they recruited a new volunteer and it's a man. I was being sexist and wished that they would bring me a woman. The driver has been helping out and good but sometimes I feel that children need a womans touch. I was so wrong. I think this is going to be good. We have an older child that can get out of hand and he made a difference. He actually got on the floor and kept his attention for a really long time. I could tell that they built with blocks and played with cars. He hasn't done nothing that I haven't done but he was so much better at keeping his attention. It also so easier with three people compared to two. This session we have had two little ones. So, a third person is a good thing.

I have been debating something for a while. I would like to use my blog to try to raise either funds or supplies for Meld. It's a great program and it's something that I would like to try. So, in the next few days, I will blog more about Meld's history and what they have done and what they could use.

I am going to commit to saving 5 a week for them. It's not a lot of money but it could add up. I already buy clothes here and there for them.

Meld had provided me with some healing. It gives me such great satisfaction that I have to wonder why didn't I start volunteering before. So, I do want to take it a step further and see if I could raise funds. I am thinking something like a ten week deal. See if I can get some money to them right before Christmas.
